This is my first photographed Red Fox in the wild. He was photographed near a residential area not far from my home. I watched him run and chase squirrels for a while before settling down for a nap..
The Cooper's Hawk is a fierce and beautiful hunter. This young hawk was one of four that came from a clutch I watched from the time their parents mated until they left the nest.
The Barred Owl is one of my favorite Raptors. This particular owl did not seem afraid of me at all. I was able to take many photos of it early one morning. Later that same day I returned to find it still sitting in the same spot. When the owl flew away, it was the most amazing thing to behold.
This Great Horned Owl nested near my home in Winter/Spring of 2016. He and his mate had one Owlet that fledged successfully. What a beauty!
If you have ever seen a Bald Eagle in the wild, you understand the excitement that comes with watching them fly. This Bald Eagle landed just above me and sat there for several minutes eating a fish and then flew away. What a wonderful experience!
